Scope and content
A large collection of charters, relating largely to the transfer of lands and titles, but also including marriage agreements, commissions and appointments, contracts of friendship, inquests, letters of tutory and more. The principal collection of approximately 500 charters is arranged chronologically, 1315 - 1784, and includes many early royal charters which record the progressive expansion of Campbell lands and influence from the 14th to the 16th centuries.
Where other series of charters, found in the bundles surveyed in NRAS 1209, are clearly part of a series, that series has been retained. See ARG/04 - Created record series.
Many of the early charters were summarised by Niall, 10th Duke of Argyll in the series known as the Argyll Transcripts (AT), see .
